Prominent start-up investor and Facebook (FB) director Peter Thiel said a "crescendo of concern is building up in Europe" about the U.S. tech industry's record on online privacy and security, which Silicon Valley is underestimating "badly,” though Google (GOOG) chairman Eric Schmidt tech companies "are way sensitive" to the concerns, reported Financial Times. The same report noted that Brad Smith, general counsel of Microsoft (MSFT), said some in the industry have "underestimated the degree to which people care about privacy,” while Salesforce.com (CRM) CEO Marc Benioff said consumer Internet companies have “paid a terrible price” for imposing a U.S.-centric view of their technology.

10:40 EDTULTAUlta rallies following better than expected results, increased FY14 outlook
Shares of beauty products retailer Ulta Salon (ULTA) are rising after the company's second quarter results topped analysts' consensus estimates.The company's outlook also exceeded analysts' expectations. WHAT'S NEW: For the second quarter, Ulta Salon reported earnings per share of 94c on revenue of $734.2M, surpassing analysts' consensus estimates of 83c and $713.01M, respectively. Same-store-sales for the quarter increased 9.6%. Ulta expects Q3 EPS to be in the range of 79c-84c, which is in-line with analysts' 83c consensus. The company said performance in the quarter was driven by a significant improvement in traffic, e-commerce growth and successful new brand and product launches. Looking ahead, the company expects third quarter revenue of $724M-$736M, which is higher than analysts' $717.46M consensus. SSS for Q3 are expected to rise 6%-8%. Ulta Salon also increased its fiscal year 2014 EPS growth view to 20% from a mid-teens percentage range and increased its FY14 sales growth view to 20% from a mid-teens percentage range. Analysts' are expecting FY14 EPS of $3.69 and revenue of $3.15B. Ulta Salon also increased its FY14 SSS growth view to approximately 7%-8% from 4%-6%. FY14 capital expenditures are forecast at $265M and the company plans to open 100 new stores, generating free cash flow in excess of $100M. Ulta also announced plans to institute a new $300M share repurchase plan to replace its existing program. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In addition to its earnings report and share repurchase announcement, the company announced five-year financial goals. Ulta anticipates delivering EPS growth in the low 20% range, excluding supply chain investments, which are expected to reduce 2015 and 2016 earnings growth rates. The estimated impact on the percentage growth rate is in the mid-single digit range. Ulta is aiming to deliver annual comparable sales growth 5%-7%, open approximately 100 stores per year and grow e-commerce to represent 10% of sales. It hopes to maintain stable operating margin in the near term before progressing towards the company’s long-term mid-teens target. The company said it will not provide specific 2015 guidance until March 2015 when it typically provides annual guidance. ANALYST REACTION: Jefferies analyst Randal Konik raised his price target to $110 from $92 and said that he feels the company gave "strong" Q2 earnings results and increased FY14 guidance. He believes that the company is positioned well to deliver on its growth plans. Konik maintains a Hold rating on the stock. Citigroup analyst Oliver Chen increased his price target on Ulta Salon to $130 from $118 and said that he feels "encouraged" by the company's "healthy" Q2 SSS and earlier than expected announcement of its five-year financial goals. He said that he will continue to like Ulta Salon as it maintains strength in a competitive and tough economic environment. He thinks that the company's new product introductions will continue to boost strong traffic. Chen keeps a Buy rating on Ulta. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Ulta Salon rose $20.14, or about 20.66%, to $117.42. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the beauty industry include Sally Beauty Holdings (SBH), Regis Corporation (RGS), and L Brands (LB).
